Coronation Street newcomer Sol Heras has promised his character Ryan Connor will ‘ruffle a hell of a lot of feathers’.

Ryan – who was previously played by Ben Thompson – has returned from university and is set to create problems for mum Michelle (Kym Marsh).

Sol told the Coronation Street website: “He’s come back as a totally different guy in every way… He really causes trouble with everyone. He’s going to ruffle a hell of a lot of feathers, he’s just a naughty boy.”

And the hunk – who has also appeared on Hollyoaks Later – said Weatherfield’s Sophie Webster was the ladies’ man’s first target.

“He tries it on with Sophie, who’s obviously a lesbian now, and he thinks he’s come back as a Jack the lad with all these habits he’s picked up and tries to convert her back, however Sophie has none of it – not that it bothers Ryan anyway,” revealed Sol.

And Sol reckons his character won’t be behaving himself any time soon.

“There’s going to be a few women yet that he’s going to try his way with, I think it’s going to be a while until the guy settles down and acts the way he should do. You can expect a lot more trouble to come from Ryan,” he explained.
